Honesty has always been an important virtue to me. Some of the books that have most affected my life have been about honesty - honesty with God and honesty with myself. "Honest to God" by Bill Hybels, "The Lies We Believe" by Dr. Chris Thurman, "Codependent No More" by Melody Beattie, and "Feal the Fear and Do It Anyway" by Susan Jeffers are among those books. I daily work to make sure that I am communicating honestly with Mark and with others. So when someone speaks the truth to me, I take it to heart...

Tonight, after speaking to the Women of COF, a young girl approached me and said these words:

"Your hair looks really bad in front." 

Then she turned and walked away. My friend, Samantha, and I watched her leave; and then we both fell out laughing. It was a true statement. I've told you before that my hair has a life of its own right now. Her honesty made me smile, and honestly, I love that she said it! Because the truth is, I love my crazy hair! 

Out of the mouths of babes...
